Experienced Guides Prioritize Safety & Fun

Our guides will work their Chacos off to make sure you have a fantastic adventure.  With big hearts and big smiles, our lively gang may start a water fight, serenade you with a harmonica, or regale you with Snake River tales to keep you laughing through every twist and turn.

As owners and managers who guide (Dave guided until age 67!), DH ensures the highest standards from all of our guides. Every guide completes our Dave Hansen Guide School which provides rigorous, hands-on river safety and river ecology training. Additionally, our senior guides take great care to mentor younger guides in all aspects of the trade and all guides continue their education through periodic classes with local environmental groups and naturalists.

Our Promise of Excellence

We will work harder than anyone on the Snake River to make sure you have a safe, fun, fantastic experience from start to finish. Every employee—from the front desk staff to the senior guide—shares the same goal: to provide you with the best possible river adventure.

Dave Hansen started commercial rafting on the Snake River over 40 years ago, naming the two biggest rapids on the river, Lunchcounter and The Big Kahuna. Four decades later, we’ve continued and enhanced Dave’s high standards of excellence: safety first, a great experience for every rafter, and a respect for the beautiful surroundings. We know there is no better place to be than playing on a river, and we’re confident you will enjoy it as much as we do!
